Will be staying in avila the week of dh's bday and this is his favorite dessert. Would be willing to go fairly far for a superior pie. Also have other family staying in cayucos and Lompoc so they could hook me up...ideas? Thanks.
This Creole classic was actually designed for the dried kidney bean—an inexpensive staple that could simmer away while Monday’s wash gets done, with a hunk of pork or sausage from Sunday night’s supper.
Cooked dried black beans provide the wow factor in this simple dip; you could serve the blended beans alone and guests would swoon over the rich, full-bodied flavor. Use leftover dip as a spread for sandwiches or burritos, or stir into a bean soup.
